The Gates of Jerusalem have become an icon of the holy city and an attraction for tourists from all over Israel and the world. Start your journey through the city's history with the Jaffa Gate, the inaugural release of the Gates of Jerusalem series.
The Zion Gate in the Jerusalem Old City Wall was built in the 16th century by the Ottoman authorities. Since it is closer in proximity to Mount Zion, it has been named Zion Gate. Being close to King David's tomb, located on Mount Zion, it is also known as David's gate.
During the Israel War for Independence on May 18, 1948, Israeli forces broke into the Old City through the Zion Gate to reach the Jewish Quarter under siege. The goal was to provide assistance to the Quarter's small force and help deter attacks by the Jodanians. The gate, riddled with bullet holes, is a reminder of the battle. Zion Gate now leads to Jewish and Armenian Quarters in Jerusalem.
